Serving Families in New Jersey and New York

Parents may choose to end their relationship, but that does not mean their interactions with each other are over. In most situations, one parent will be obligated to make child support payments to the other, who will then use that money to provide for the child or children. The payments are a frequent source of contention between parents, sometimes many times over a period of years.

Child Support Guidelines in Bergen County and the Bronx

Judges in both states make child support determinations based on a set of guidelines that are set forth by the legislature. Our job as family law lawyers is to give the judge an accurate picture of your family so he or she can make a determination that fits your unique situation. Some of the factors a judge will evaluate are:

  • How many children are involved?
  • Does either parent have children from previous relationships?
  • The income of both parents
  • The standard of living to which the child is accustomed
  • Expenses for education, health care, day care and other needs
  • The custody and visitation schedule

Modifying or Enforcing Existing Child Support Orders

Child support may last for years, so it is sometimes necessary to change the amount of the payments. Major events such as a remarriage, loss of a job or long-term illness can necessitate a modification of the child support order. In other situations, the paying parent simply fails to pay. In those circumstances, our lawyers can guide you through an enforcement proceeding to obtain the payments to which your child is entitled.
